“Being able to engage colleagues in discussions around processes, protocols and overcoming real-life clinical and organizational issues is empowering and immensely worthwhile.”
“It was good group bonding for our physicians and coordinators to attend this together.”
“Advocacy Day was life-changing.”
“Meeting other pediatric PH professionals and exchanging ideas is very helpful in creating a community. It is so nice to be able to reach out to other centers with questions and know who you are talking to on the other end.”
“I got tremendous satisfaction from attending the sessions and then discussing application with colleagues caring for the same patient population and experiencing the same issues.”
“I was able to connect with others through the meal sessions, poster presentation viewing and networking events during the day and at night.”
“It allowed me to hear what colleagues across the country are doing. It also created a community feeling of professionals that are working with similar patient populations and struggling with similar challenges.”
“I enjoyed being able to learn and share with my peers in a face-to-face setting. It was a great way to find out what others in my field are doing in their practice. I now have a relationship with some other PH professionals around the country such that they are a phone call or email away if I have questions.”
Susie McDevitt, 2021 Symposium Committee Chair, offers a thank you message to PHPN Symposium attendees.
